Vietnam Manufacturing Sector Shrinks in July
The IHS Markit Vietnam Manufacturing PMI fell to 47.6 in July 2020 from 51.1 in June, as the COVID-19 crisis continued to impact demand and activity. Both output and new orders contracted after growing in June, amid a sharp drop in export sales and a further reduction in employment. Also, manufacturers scaled back their purchasing activity, stocks of inputs and finished goods inventories. Suppliers' delivery times lengthened for the eighth time in as many months. Difficulties receiving items from suppliers in China and issues with sea transportation were reportedly behind the latest instance of lead time lengthening. Regarding prices, input costs went up for the second straight month, though the rate of inflation remained muted. Meanwhile, output prices were reduced for the sixth month running.

Vietnam Manufacturing PMI
The IHS Markit Vietnam Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 400 manufacturing companies. The Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change.
